Media Advisory - Symantec Connected & Protected High-Tech Interactive Truck Visits Vancouver



    Truck tour designed to help raise Internet safety awareness in Canada's
    least safe "cyber-city"

    TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     As part of the Norton Connected & Protected Mobile Tour, an
              18-wheel semi-truck packed with interactive displays, games,
              surveys, product demos and tutorials will be visiting the
              Centre for Digital Media today.

              Recently, a national survey identified Vancouver as Canada's
              least safe "cyber-city". In an effort designed to help raise
              Vancouverites' awareness of the need to protect themselves when
              online, Symantec is bringing its mobile online-safety tour to
              the Greater Vancouver Area.

              This is a great news story that looks at where kids are going
              online, what are the potential risks children can encounter on
              the Internet and what kinds of information kids are sharing on
              social networking sites.

    WHEN:     Thursday, January 24th - Media Day
              10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Centre for Digital Media

    WHERE:    Centre for Digital Media
              577 Great Northern Way
              Vancouver, BC
